A quotation you like…

So I Run with Purpose in Every Step. 1 Corinthians 9:26


Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.


That voice inside your head that says you can’t do this is a liar.

Why do you run?


I run for exercise, but more I run for mental health, clarity, and pure enjoyment of the Runner’s High that comes from a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Running provides peace and empowerment to achieve goals never thought possible!

Describe your best marathon memory.


Running my first marathon – Marine Corps Marathon Shadow Run – in the dusty, rocky path around Camp Arifjan after training with “The Minnows” to accomplish something I never thought possible. It was during this race that I fell in love with myself again through running and haven’t stopped since. Everyday I’m reminded on the precious gift that was given to me during this race.

Why do you pace?


The delight and satisfaction that spreads across the faces of runners when they cross the finish line meeting their personal goals.
